Global is local. Local is global.

At the Gillings School, we work in all 100 North Carolina counties and in 35+ countries. Local and global health content infuses our courses and degrees. Through partnerships at home and abroad, our students and faculty transform health around the world and in our backyard.

Message from the Associate Dean for Global Health

Meet one of our Fulbright Scholar's, Paz Cook, PhD student in epidemiology

Global health for me is about knowing, understanding, accepting, and considering the diverse cosmovision of health and reality across communities, towns, cities, and countries, in order to create realistic, acceptable, and applicable ways to prevent health problems and create public health solutions.

Meet Sarah Lebu, PhD student in Environmental Sciences and Engineering

Learn about Sarah's professional background prior to UNC Gillings, her work with CFK Africa and the UNC Water Institute, and what global health means to her.
